virginia that killed 12 workers. miller's bill passed the house in 2008 but it stalled in the senate, partly because of the main championship of the bill, senator ted kennedy, became ill and later passed away. they passed legislation. they tried to do more. what has to happen on a congressional level to protect the workers. >> interestingly, that 2006 law you mentioned, chairman miller rejected it, said it wasn't strong enough and said, will not vote for it. nancy pelosi did the same, rahm emanuel did the same, a number of liberal democrats rejected that bill outright. the bill in 2008 would have made it's easier to close the mines and added penalties and it might have add a little more sway and then it hit the senate. you mentioned kennedy's illness, that was certainly a factor but also a veto threat from the white house and there was no way they would have gotten the 67 to override the veto so they dropped interest the senate. >> so the obama administration as well has not done enough? sn>> there's certainly more tha the obama administration can do. they're kind of feeling their wa

in west virginia. the ceo of massey energy knew that the mine was unsafe. i think he should face a criminal investigation for his negligen negligence. this morning, the president said the nation owes more to the miners and promised the justice department would use every tool in the investigation and called out the massey executives directly for putting profits before the safety of the workers. >> owners responsible for conditions in the upper big branch mine should be held accountable for decisions they made and preventive measures they failed to take. safety violators like massey have still been able to find ways to put their mines before the safety of their workers. filing endless appeals instead of paying fines and fixing safety problems. i refuse to accept any number of miner deaths as the cost of doing business. >> joining me, phil hear, former union leader and from the house education committee. good to have you tonight. everything in washington is political. if the democrats can't get behind labor now, in the wake of loss of life here and make some changes, when are they g

final pages in my "playbook" tonight. president obama visited west virginia sunday to pay tribute to the 29 miners killed earlier this month in a mine explosion. the president told family members their memories would be honored by improving safety conditions in the mines around the country. obama, the president of the united states, has ordered reviews of all coal mines in the united states with poor safety records. there's a lot of them. he wants federal officials to strengthen laws full of loopholes that allow unsafe conditions to continue. the senate will hold a mine safety hearing tomorrow. the nation's top mine safety expert is expected to testify. we'll, of course, be watching that and have coverage for you tomorrow night. >>> finally, 40 miles off the coast of louisiana, the situation involving the oil rig disaster seems to be getting worse. officials from b.p. said the well is currently leaking up to 42,000 gallons of oil into the ocean each day. so far submarines have been unable to engage the blowout valve to immediately shut off the flow. which isn't good. they are hope

mines run by massey energy. the company in charge of the west virginia mine where 29 workers were killed in an explosion just weeks ago. the raids resulted in multiple citations for serious safety violations. massey energy responded by immediately firing several miners, and their supervisors. meanwhile, on capitol hill, the senate is trying to figure out how to prevent disasters like the one earlier this month. in a committee hearing today united mine workers president cecil roberts laid the blame for the tragedy squarely on the shoulders of massey energy. >> these miners who work at massey are scared to death. they're intimidated. this company is run like it's 1921, not like the present day. my opposition is, when you talk about criminal prosecution here, now is the time because the people who knew that this was going on, there's no question in my mind that the people at the very top here and the board of directors knew that this mine was in this kind of shape. how is it that a company can be allowed in this day and age to put people in this kind of a position? this is not the worst min

in the explosion in west virginia mine earlier this month. at a senate hearing yesterday, the united mine workers president spoke about the unjust risk miners face as they go off to work. >> a young man of 25 years old wrote his mother and his fiancee a letter. he has a young baby which i happen to meet on sunday, and said if i die in this coal mine, please tell everyone that i love them. that's the kind of letter people used to write when they went off to vietnam in my era. that's not the kind of letters they're supposed to write when they get their dinner bucket and go to work in the united states of america. congress should stand up and take a position. we're not going to tolerate this. this is united states of america. >> joining me now is democratic congressman george miller, a californian. he is chair of the educational labor committee and sits on the natural resources committee. congressman, good to have you with us tonight on this very serious subject. i don't think anybody could say it any better than cecil roberts. is it time for action? will something happen in the wake of this terribl

for watching tonight. the fbi is investigating the company in charge of the west virginia mine, where 29 workers died in an explosion earlier this month. today a government official said agents are looking into whether massey energy company was criminally negligent in its attention to safety concerns. a separate report suggests the feds are also investigating whether inspectors from the mine safety and health administration accepted bribes to ignore safety problems. the labor department denies that allegation. this news comes on the heels of a report that massey energy offered a settlement of $3 million to the families of each of the miners who died. that is not justice. massey energy and their ceo don blankenship are tried to cash whip grieving families. that's what it is. it seems to me that massey is trying to buy their silence. how can a company that is so wealthy justify having the money to pay the family of the dead miners but not spend a dime to keep work essters alive in the first place and work on the safety of the environment? one family is suing don blankenship and nas massny
